TAG has been named the top high school in the nation for the fifth consecutive year by U.S. News and World Report!
We are honored by this recognition and are proud that the hard work, dedication, and passion of our students and staff is recognized. We also enormous thanks to our fabulous parents and community members; without your constant support, TAG would not be what it is today.
Thank you to our superintendent Dr. Hinojosa and Dallas ISD, as well as our school board trustee Dr. Lew Blackburn, for your support!

Online voting on whether or not to eliminate class rank will take place beginning on Tuesday, April 12 through Monday, April 18.
A letter will go home with students detailing the process on Tuesday, as well as an email and an all-call. If you would like more information, you can look at the two documents linked below which outline pros and cons of the ranking/unranking process.
As you may know, class rank is a hot topic and has been widely discussed at TAG for the past couple years. We finally have been afforded the option of holding a vote to determine whether or not to continue ranking all of our students or eliminate class ranking with the exception of those in the top 10%.
Our SBDM Committee and Class Rank Exploratory committee met in February to discuss the pros and cons of unranking TAG students. All of the information about the policy can be found at the link HERE.
This Friday morning at 8:30am during the PTSA Coffee, we will be holding a meeting to discuss the rank policy and answer any questions about it before it all goes to a vote at the end of April.
If you have any questions at all or would like to attend a parent meeting at a different time, please reach out to Principal Mackey directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
